Instead, he goes out and basically undermines the administration. Colson said because of its nature, the FBI has dossiers on everybody. Colson said if Felt thought the Watergate investigation was corrupt, he should have resigned. He also said that if Felt had attempted to confront Nixon before going to the press, the administration might have been saved. I really feel sorry for him because I think he goes out on a very sour note.

Deep Throat's mistake

Beyond Deep Throat: The Hidden Watergate Sources That Helped Topple a President

Charles Colson has sharply criticized Mark Felt, the former No. Colson became a committed Christian during the scandal and later founded Prison Fellowship , a ministry to prisoners and their families. Because he was basically leaking FBI files, which ironically is what I went to prison for. He was handing out FBI files, which are held in the greatest secrecy, in a clandestine operation with Woodward and Bernstein. That's the most secure thing in the United States government, because the FBI, for goodness sakes, has files on half of the American people.

Cookie Consent and Choices

While many are calling F. Amy Robach : Chuck, I'm going to begin with you. You say you were shocked at yesterday's announcement, but as early as late '72 and early '73, Nixon did suspect Felt as a potential leaker. What do you think Nixon would say to this revelation?
Chuck Colson said at first he "did not believe it" when he learned-along with the rest of the nation-the true identity of Deep Throat. The noted evangelical author, speaker, and founder of Prison Fellowship said he, like other leading Watergate figures, long discounted the presence of an inside informant feeding scoops to Washington Post reporters from an underground parking garage. With the evidence piling up, Mr. Colson said, he can concede that Mr. Felt is the man.
